Author(s):
P Hima Bindu, B Prakash Kumar, V Devi Prasad and B Chandra Prasad
Abstract:
The present study was carried out to investigate the incidence of mammary tumors in bitches. Among the 20 cases studied, the highest incidence (55%) occurred in dogs above 10 years old, with the Spitz breed being the most susceptible (55%). The tumors exhibited diverse sizes, ranging from 30 mm to 450 mm, and were predominantly hard, nodular, and non-pedunculated. Clinical examination revealed gland-wise occurrences, with 50% of cases affecting the right mammary gland chain. Fine needle aspiration cytology identified mammary carcinoma in 90% of cases, with one case each of adenoma and lipoma.
